I'm moving the following sentence from the lede of the article page to this talk page,

His name means "Voice of the Buddha" in the Pāli language.


  • It does not fit with the flow of the paragraph, and,
  • More importantly, it does not refer to the import of the article which follows it.

Perhaps somebody will know a better place within the article for the sentence other than the lede. makeswell (talk) 02:30, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Critics - Shravasti Dhammika[edit]

(Copied from [1]) [The section of text from the Visuddhimagga mentioned above exists only in the Sinhalese texts, not in the original Pali.] This is a fact that can be verified by viewing page 743 of the Visuddhimagga where the translator states that the section in question does not exist in the original Pali text and is only found in subsequent Sinhalese versions. Therefore it is not "original research" the research was done by Bhikkhu Nanamoli and is published in the following reliable source (or one could simply look at the online version:, the original text by Buddhaghosa was written in Pali and so the Sinhalese edition(s) are later translated versions of the original text. The fact that it was written in Pali is stated in the introduction to this same book): Visuddhimagga The Path of Purification by Bhadantacariya Buddhaghosa. translated by Bhikkhu Nanamoli copyright 1975, 1991 Buddhist Publication Society.

I wonder if Shravasti Dhammika is a reliable source; he seems to be selfpublished. It looks to me like you've got a point here. I've edited the section, and used your comment as a reference. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 11:12, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
